Identify the Key Factors for Commercial Snow Removal
In the summer, the last thing you probably want to think about is the inevitable onset of winter. But if you think ahead, your future self will thank you. Before it’s too late, and you’re facing the first snowfall of the season, research some commercial snow removal companies to keep your property spotless and safe for associates and visitors. Here are some things to look out for in a snow removal company:
Commercial snow management teams may not offer all the services you need. And if they do, there’s a possibility they’re purchased separately. A good snow removal company includes more than just shoveling snow off to the side or leaving the huge pile in the middle of your parking lot. Make sure the company you choose provides all the necessary services in addition to snow plowing, like:
Appropriate snow relocation
Shoveling and deicing walkways and stairs
Consider the size and specific requirements of your property. Not every location is the same, so there are different tools and equipment needed for different commercial buildings. Whether your facility is big or small, make sure the snow removal company you choose has the right fleet of snow removal and salt trucks. Also, find out if they have enough workers to get the job done in a timely and efficient manner.
Your best bet is to choose a company that is legitimate, licensed, and insured. Your building is your responsibility and you want to protect it at all costs. Avoid hiring an uninsured company; if there’s an incident or if any crew members sustain injury while working on your premises, you assume liability—that’ll create a host of issues down the road. Instead, err on the side of caution and verify the company’s in good standing with a reliable insurance provider.
With a professional snow removal company, you shouldn’t have to be on constant weather-watch—that’s their responsibility. Hire the one who monitors the weather 24/7. This prevents you from having to schedule any last minute services. Correct and consistent communication regarding the weather forecast is key to avoiding a mess on your property.
A company’s reputation is what makes or breaks them. Do a Google search and read their reviews. If there’s a pattern of unhappy customers, obviously they’re not the ones you should do business with. In addition to checking their ratings, search their social media to find more information on the kind of job they perform according to their customers. Your needs must be met and your initial level of satisfaction sets the tone for what kind of partnership you’ll have with them in the future.

We’ve trained our crew members to safely remove snow from your property with our streamlined processes. Plus, we perform salt and calcium treatments for an extra layer of protection.
With Varsity Inc., you also have the power to choose the ice melting services you prefer, between rock salt or calcium chloride. Rock salt is highly effective for deicing the walkways and stairs. Plus, its abrasiveness helps provide traction for vehicles and foot traffic to prevent slip-and-fall accidents.
On the other hand, calcium chloride is a chemical treatment that’s safe and melts ice much faster than rock salt. Depending on your timeframe, location, and budget, we provide our services to you, offering you peace of mind, no matter how messy the weather may be.
